Recipe - fish & veggies made easy

I found this recipe as I was looking for ideas to incorporate more fish into our diet ( They use canned salmon, but it might be interesting to buy fresh salmon and cook it yourself. If anyone tries this (I´m waiting till dh returns) let me know what you think.

Corny Salmon Cakes
Makes 4 Servings
Two 6-ounce cans boneless, skinless pink salmon, drained and finely flaked
1 cup dried breadcrumbs, divided
3/4-cup pre-shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
3/4 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
1/3-cup light canola mayonnaise
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 large egg, beaten
1-tablespoon canola oil
1. Combine the salmon, 1/2-cup breadcrumbs, cheese, corn, mayonnaise,
ketchup, and egg in a bowl and mix until combined.
2. Shape the mixture into 8 patties and coat with the remaining 1/2-cup
3. Heat half the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the patties
until golden brown, 5 minutes. Add the remaining oil to the skillet, flip the patties
and cook an additional 4 to 5 minutes.

I´ve included a picture of "crab cakes" - to encourage someone to try it, although these look different because they have corn in them.
